The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) prepared an EA that assesses the potential environmental impacts of a proposal to increase liquefied natural gas production and export capacity at the existing Freeport LNG Liquefaction Project in Brazoria County, Texas.

DOE, a cooperating agency, adopted FERC's EA and issued a FONSI. DOE's Office of Fossil Energy has an obligation under Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act to authorize the import and export of natural gas, including LNG, unless it finds that the import or export is not consistent with the public interest.
